Notes On The Rankings:

- The top of the ballot stayed mostly the same as it was with the exception of Wisconsin jumping up over Boise State. The Broncos did nothing wrong in dismantling Toledo, but the Badgers have continued to dominate against decent (but not great) competition, something that a lot of other teams across the country haven't been able to do.

- I had no problem with FSU moving up a spot after losing to Oklahoma. They played a great game against the team that is currently the #1 team in both polls, yet those same polls move them down almost 10 spots for a close loss. Doesn't make sense.

- A lot of new teams at the bottom of the poll, but there is a good chance that this will look very different next week. We have a loaded weekend coming up, including LSU - WVU, Alabama - Arkansas, Okie St - A&M, FSU - Clemson, and UNC - GT. We will know a lot more about where these teams sit on Sunday.

- Speaking of big games, it's starting to be that time in the Pac-12 as well. All the match-ups except for ours are conference games with Oregon - Arizona, California - Washington, USC - Arizona State, and OSU - UCLA. 

Who would you move up or down?
